Directv Stream Can't watch Dodgers Channel 690 any more

I live in Anaheim and has never had issues with Dodgers Directv Channel + Channel 690 SportsNet La before.  Today both channels are blacked out.  Please advise on what to do?  Thanks.

Nothing. Per the message on the screen, the broadcaster (not DirecTV) has restricted access. DirecTV has no reason to restrict access.

Due to broadcasting restrictions, some events could be blacked out. Depending on your market, it may be on another channel. Here's more info about where you might find your game; https://sports.directv.com/all/custom Jill, DIRECTV Community Specialist

Hello Jill.

I live in Anaheim (Zip Code 92805) & the Dodgers are not blocked here.  This has to be an error on Directv side.  Both these channels have always worked.   Both the Directv 4k Dodgers Channel + Channel 690 are part of Orange County.

DirecTV does not block any broadcasters content. They only broadcast what is provided to them from the broadcaster. Perhaps you should contact the provider for clarity.

If the game is broadcast on a local channel for your market, even if DirecTV doesn't have it, then you watch it there instead of the RSN. Also be aware that the MLB did sell off the rights to some games to Apple in a 7 year deal. As such you may not always have access to some of their games.

In case there is an authorization error you could try www.directv.com/refresh (if still can be done online under your equipment). That essentially sends a signal to refresh the service authorizations.

Hi, @Sirgenghiskhanh.  We're sorry about getting this error on your TV. If a game is blacked out from certain DIRECTV channels or sports subscriptions, you may be able to see it on another DIRECTV channel or on one of your local broadcast channels.

Yes we know what channel you are talking about as it was already stated in your opening post. The point being made is not every game is guaranteed to be on the channel. Depending on who has the rights to the game you might need to watch it elsewhere, such a local channel or even Apple TV (since they got a 7 year deal to monopolize some games). So it is possible it was blacked out on the RSN if one of those others had rights to the channel.

And just so you are aware, weekend games you deal with ESPN and Fox having rights to some afternoon/night games. MLB seems to have the most complicated blackouts compared to the other major sports.

I have the same issue, but figure things out on my own.  If you have the SportsNet LA package on DirecTV just login in through this link, which will require you to use your directv login from att.

I never had this problem as well.  I was told many times by DirecTV support that they cannot stream through my account, because of exclusive rights from Spectrum.  I never gave up and now are about to watch the Dodgers play the Cubs ...

use this link and use your directv login to access...PROBLEM SOLVED....
